Using 'best for built-in display' setting on older 15"  Macbook Pro,  and also have tried using all the scaled options as well... the problem is that now I have to scroll left/right/up/down to see all my desktop icons/menus/dock icons and the screen 'jumps' to show the remainder of the display window when I touch the mouse to any of the sides... I have tried using different settings in the view options window e.g., icon size, grid settings, etc.


Previously this was just fine until I had to restore some files from Time Machine... I even tried to restore the Display Preferences from a date that I knew was ok, all to no avail...


This is on a Macbook Pro 3,1 using OS 10.8.3... any thoughts?
